In our second session we went into more detail about posture, learning about how paying attention to how we sit helps us to settle the ‘monkey mind’. Often our minds are stirred up by a kind of mental cinema which projects thoughts about the past and future, so it was helpful to watch a teaching called ‘Contentment’ explaining how meditation can help us to discover the kind of ‘inner peace and contentment’ in which we can let go of our projections and preoccupations and relax into the present moment. Meditation can bring this kind of relaxed state in which we are ‘not trying to get anything or ‘trying to attain anything’. Next week we will look at what to do with our minds in meditation.
